When Exported as Part of a Procedure Definition, The Yen Symbol (¥) May Be Incorrectly Converted During Import (Doc ID 759883.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 18, 2009

Applies to:

Oracle Server Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.5
This problem can occur on any platform.
Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.2.0.2

Symptoms

The Database is exported using the original export utility. A user-defined package, procedure, function, or trigger includes the yen symbol (¥). The original import utility may complete successfully without warnings.  The difference in characters is demonstrated by the following examples.
The source database shows the user-defined PL/SQL as follows:

     some_variable := TRIM(<some_column>) || '¥';

After conversion of the yen symbol (¥), the target database shows the user-defined PL/SQL as follows:

     some_variable := TRIM(<some_column>) || 'Y';
